Being a retired police chief means you get to buy the retiring cars before they go to auction. There are four gray Crown Vics in my in-laws’ yard now. One still has a light bar on top. Two are slick-top cars in full livery. One’s unmarked with wheel covers and a spotlight. This is in addition to the other 18 cars that they have on the property - three of which are driven regularly.

this - times four.
